A people say BMW's are ugly? MCN said "Challenging Looks" I'd agree

Also where's the three point pick up? - I thought all Harley Fergusons came with a three point pick up for the plough :D
There would appear to be a surfeit of prolixity and sesquipedalian content today please do not use a big word when a singularly un-loquacious and diminutive linguistic expression will satisfactorily accomplish the contemporary necessity

Hmmm... no risk whatsoever of that appearing on the shortlist for my next motorcycle purchase. :pukeleft:
You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

The 'pan american' is as ugly as a very ugly thing, but the street fighter looks good in my eyes, maybe fills the buell niche?

The electric Harley is interesting for me from a professional perspective. I can tell you that a lot of manufacturers, 2 and 4 wheels are looking at certaim aspects of this. It's not to say Harley have it right, but they are certainly going to break new ground with their strategy.

It looks no better or worse than all the other stereotype off road bikes that do not go off road. I hate them all and all the stupid metal box panniers and all the pilots who waft the bloody things all over the place, They take up more road width coming round a bend than a national express coach. I like motorcycles to look like motorcycles. They all suck!! :wink:

Aye, obviously in a minority due to the enormity of them holding up traffic on our roads!! :wink:
